out to republicans. he called john mccain and lindsay graham and marco rubio. in a statement the white house said the president reiterated that he remained supportive of the effort underway in congress. as that phone call came in for one senator, so did something of a backlash for constituents. at two town hall meetings in arizona, john mccain had to defend his position on immigration and it got heated. several voters called illegal immigrants criminals and asked why armed soldiers can't defend the entire border. >> cut off their welfare and all of their stuff and go back. >> majority of them are not -- >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> it's a banana, we've put up a banana with all -- >> let me bring in "washington post" reporter felicia san dez and jackie, we knew this wasn't going to be easy. what do you think away from that town hall meeting? do you think the folks are representative of a bigger problem for some of
